Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 210760
Wrong colours if desktop effects are enabled
Last modified: 2009-06-27 11:42:54 EDT
Description of problem:
On my last generation Apple iBook G4 I get my screen coloured in crazy hues when
I enable desktop effects. Though the effects are working.
Other 3D applications are not affected. Look at glxgears on the screenshot.
I am not sure if this is caused by compiz or another component.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable desktop effects.
Screenshot and Xorg.0.log attached.

It seems there's a patch to fix this bug, maybe it's worth to take a look at
I see the same think on my 12" G3 Ibook. I am going to try and test the patch

This patch doesn't apply to the current xorg-x11-server packages in Rawhide and
FC6. Perhaps we'll have to wait until Xorg 7.2 hits the streets.
Reassigning to xorg-x11-server. Correct me, if I'm wrong.

Updated tfp-damage patch
Silly me, should have looked at the already applied patches. I've built a
package with the updated tfp-damage patch, and it works for me.

If the patch is applied as #110 to xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-47.fc6, it applies
cleanly, builds cleanly, and results in proper-working and proper-color eye-candy.
I don't understand why we need such an extensive patch (#8) if it's just an
endinanness problem that is fixed by a 4-line patch?
Are we fixing a different problem?
Eep. The patch I'm referring to was the 4-line one, not the one in comment #8.
It works fine with the tfp-damage patch already in xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-47.fc6.
SRPM w/patch (as well as binary builds in the same dir):
The patch I used is already attached to bug 215667:

Calm down people...
The original tfp-damage patch as found in xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-47.fc6
introduces the code where the 4-line patch matches. I just combined both patches.
The only thing that needs to be done is replacing the
xorg-x11-server-1.1.0-tfp-damage.patch with the one in comment #7 (which
incorporates the 4-liner), bumping the version, and adding a Changelog entry.
The result is the same, but cleaner from packagers perspective... ;)
Any reason this patch hasn't made it into an FC6 build yet?
Fixed in Rawhide, but still no changes for FC6. Setting version to FC6 accordingly.
